I think it may interest your Lordships to hear the contents of a telegram which I have received this afternoon from Sir Henry Loch. It arrived at 1.4 p.m., is dated 9th November, and is as follows:— Following message received from Colonel Goold-Adams:—'6th November. Yesterday Makalakas sent in representations asking for protection, stating column from east in possession of Buluwayo and Lobengula fled, also Gambo and his large impi had fled towards Gwai River, leaving Buluwayo to the right. Messengers have reached me from Jameson confirming above. I am sending message to Jameson, and am starting with my column for Buluwayo at once.' Gambo is Induna who commanded impi against Goold-Adams's force on 2nd November.
